HEALTH AND SAFETY IS EVERYONE’S CONCERN

Awareness campaigns prioritize quality of life, well-being and safe working during day-to-day activities at JBS and life in general

 

Sao Paulo, September 25, 2018 – JBS is sponsoring Sipat 2018 throughout September, with four-day, intense and wide-ranging schedule that aims to raise awareness of health and safety issues. Workshops, talks and classes available to all Head Office staff.

 

The Attitude Blitz workshop provided guidance on safe working in all JBS areas, observing the use of handrails and signed lanes and respect for hazard signage. The talks addressed themes such as the importance of practicing sports, financial education, firefighting and prevention, traffic safety, sexuality and STDs. Employees could also take Pilates and aerofight classes.

 

“Always choose the safe path. It is the path that will take you home.” This is one of the phrases from the safe working campaign, which analyzed safety in and out of the workplace environment. The main message was that each employee is a role model for everyone else around them. The target of another campaign was to encourage employees to take care of the people around them: “Taking care of colleagues is taking care of everyone”. This helped make health and safety a relevant issue throughout the year.

 

All company units in Brazil have Internal Accident Prevention (CIPA) and Health and Safety Committees.
